- rural track never had sign posted
- neglected road, sign fallen off
- unsigned road gained hight due to maintenance

While maxspeed is a legal limit, maxheight is derived from a
physical limitation.

Bridges can also be much higher than 4 m, but height not known,
so why should I tag it 4 m. I'd prefer to tag what I see,
i.e. I see no sign, I tag unsigned/unmarked/un-whatever-we-conclude.

Keep it simple.
